"Run with eager desire to this source of life and light..."
Hello everyone. I hope you are well and keeping safe. Happy Feast of the Sacred Heart. If you plan on going to confession this evening (4-6PM), there is one station in the foyer where you enter the center door from inside the church. There is also a station in the adoration chapel where you enter the sanctuary to the right from inside the church. Both stations are set up so that you can go anonymously or face to face with proper space for social distancing.
Confessions on Saturdays from 4-5PM will resume tomorrow. We will probably continue to use the adoration chapel.
Enjoy the rest of the day. Here is some food for thought and prayer by St Bonaventure regarding the Sacred Heart of Jesus:
Run with eager desire to this source of life and light, all you who are vowed to God’s service. Come, whoever you may be, and cry out to him with all the strength of your heart. “O indescribable beauty of the most high God and purest radiance of eternal light! Life that gives all life, light that is the source of every other light, preserving in everlasting splendor the myriad flames that have shone before the throne of your divinity from the dawn of time! Eternal and inaccessible fountain, clear and sweet stream flowing from a hidden spring, unseen by mortal eye! None can fathom your depths nor survey your boundaries, none can measure your breadth, nothing can sully your purity. From you flows ‘the river which gladdens the city of God’ and makes us cry out with joy and thanksgiving in hymns of praise to you, for we know by our own experience that ‘
with you is the source of life, and in your light we see light’.
